ANJA PAERSON WINS LIENZ GS AS WORLD CUP SCHEDULE RESUMES
Kildow leads U.S. with 24th, Schleper returns to action
LIENZ, Austria (Dec. 28) - Defending World Cup overall champion Anja Paerson of Sweden powered her way to her first giant slalom win in 14 months Wednesday and regained the World Cup points lead. Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO) was 24th and Kristina Koznick (Eagan, MN) 25th.
Paerson, who has won the last two overall titles and whose last GS win came in Soelden, Austria, to open the 2005 season, picked up her third win of the season with a two-run time of 2:09.94 with Austrian Nicole Hosp second (2:10.15) and Slovenian Tina Maze third (2:10.34). Kildow’s time was 2:12.65 with Koznick 25th in 2:12.70.
The race marked the return of two-time Olympian Sarah Schleper (Vail, CO), who had been sidelined since the eve of the opener in Soelden in October, with back pains. She underwent surgery in Innsbruck last month and has been free-skiing since earlier this month.
Paerson, who has won the last two overall titles, holds the overall lead with 540 points to 532 for Janica Kostelic of Croatia and 510 for Austrian Michaela Dorfmeister. Kildow stands fifth (397) with Mancuso ninth.
The women race slalom Thursday and then are off until Jan. 5 with a night slalom in Zagreb, Croatia, followed by another GS-slalom combination Jan. 7-8 in Maribor, Slovenia.
